Common "Prostate-specific Antigen" queries answered by top doctors | iCliniq

Prostate-specific Antigen

Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is a substance produced by both normal and malignant cells of the prostate. The PSA test measures the amount of PSA in a men's blood. The normal value of PSA ranges from 0.0 to 2.5 ng/mL. It varies according to the age of the males. A range of 4.0 to 10.0 ng/mL suggests the possibility of a twenty-five percent chance of having prostate cancer. Having a range above 10.0 ng/mL means a fifty percent chance of having prostate cancer.
